Today I had lunch with Christine Dann who has been travelling around the North Island interviewing people for a book with the working title The Down Home Diet. Her book is going to be about relocalising our our food supply, and how it can be produced sustainably. She’s looking at oil-free and low carbon ways of accessing, growing and eating food.
We talked about the Slow Food movement, what the Aotearoa convivium is doing and hoping to achieve in and around Wellington. Christine is looking for examples of how people are producing food and welcomes your stories — write to her at email@example.com.
From what she tells me, there's a lot of interesting things going on out there, a lot of interesting people doing good, food-related things. It’s to be published by Craig Potton Publishers towards the end of this year. I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
